The Georgia Bulldogs have moved up one spot to 8th in the latest 2020 College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday evening by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee.

Georgia moved up one spot after winning at South Carolina. The No. 8 spot was previously occupied by Northwestern, but they lost to Michigan State on Saturday.

Alabama is again ranked first, and the Crimson Tide are followed by Notre Dame, Clemson, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Florida, and Cincinnati.

Georgia now has no wins over teams ranked in the College Football Playoff rankings after Auburn lost to Alabama and dropped out. The Bulldogs fell to No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Florida earlier this season.

The Bulldogs are currently ranked 10th in the Amway Coaches Poll and 11th in the AP Poll.
